hasn't read the bill. mayor dianne feinstein has been a mayor. she's been in a shooting. she knows why she needs this. let's support the president and get some things done. >> however, momentum does seem to be building behindmost of the president's proposals. "wall street journal" saying the senate democrats include a bill limiting magazine clips and universal background checks despite continuing opposition of the nra. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it is never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >>> and factor this one in. an ad by mayors against illegal guns ran during the super bowl. it pointed out that the nra once supported closing the so-called gun show loophole. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> let me bring in our political panel. radio talk show host and ms nns contributor michael smerkonish, mar gi o may ra and republican strategist hogan gitley. i sho

't been a formal -- yes, senator feinstein is passed legislation were offered legislation. it isn't really going to the process. they just had hearings. there are three major proposals and i'll give you a morning line as two where they stand. first is the idea of an assault weapons ban like we had for 10 years starting in 94. diane feinstein proposing that. that we'll have the hardest time passing. there are some indications the white house realizes that we'll have a difficult time. some more likely is a limit on the size of these high-capacity magazines that carey 30 rounds. 100 rounds. and i think there is a better chance that could get through. the thing that has the best chance is a greatly expanded were possibly even universal background check. arguments about the numbers but whether it's 20 or 30 or 40% a large number of gun sales in this country there is no check to see whether the person has a history of mental illness or criminal record. i think that has the best chance in fact the polls showed 90% of americans support that idea. >> speaking of that today during the super bowl may
. >> what do you make of his point and many who are critical of what senator dianne feinstein has proposed, over the fact that we do have hundreds if not thousands of lawses on the books already. >> it's a legitimate point. they are not being forced. i asked markicle bethat, who is a big supporter of gun control. he said, i would like to see them enforced. he is not saying that everything the nra is saying is wrong. remember, this is a retired navy captain. me and gabrielle giffords had and have guns. but he says, that doesn't solve a lot of the problems. i thought this was one of the revelations, i don't think they have much of a chance of getting an assault weapons ban. there is a growing realization, it is not going to happen on capitol hill this year. i think there is much more of a support and push and chance for a element on the size of magazines and especially for an expansion of the background check. and the polls indicate, a lot of nra number members support the idea, with a history of mental illness, and if there is a criminal record, there should be a limit. the person who shot
and joe biden and dianne feinstein and chuck schumer and 24 other democrats in the senate and all but one of the republicans in the senate all voted yes. and yeah, there were democrats who were against the war from the beginning. and that one republican, lincoln chaffee. but there were enough democrats who said yes and went along with it. that's part of the reason the war happened. the difference over time is that republican chuck hagel and most of the democrats who were wrong about iraq, they figured out that they were wrong and they turned against the war and ultimately they tried to end the war because it had been a mistake. we can say mistake in the technical sense here, right? the war was started to go get weapons of mass destruction from saddam and to stop saddam from helping al qaeda. well, saddam had no relationship with al qaeda that we were stopping. and saddam had no weapons of mass destruction. it was wrong. the war was factually wrong. right? we have learned that. this is not a controversial assertion. john mccain led the senate today in trying ton just stop chuck hagel from
feinstein then let the hearing resume after about a ten-minute break with a lot of empty chairs in there. she is allowed to ask them to leave when there are disruptions that sort of determined at the discretion of the chair, wolf. >> there's been a bunch of questions on what's called enhanced interrogation. some call it torcher on very, very sensitive issues. what did he have to say? >> reporter: the nominee in the past has said that he opposed enhanced interrogation but he was asked about a statement he made in 2007 to cbs news in which he said in part, quote, there has been a lot of information that has come out from these interrogation procedures that the agency, be meaning the cia, has in fact used against the real hardcore terrorists and it has saved lives. well, he was asked to defend that statement. why does he think back in 2007 enhanced interrogation saved lives but now he doesn't. this administration opposes enhanced interrogation, wolf. john brennan said, it was the work of this very committee that he's testifying in front of that issued his mind. they issued a 6,000 page repo
is more precise and careful than most people imagine. i notice that chairman feinstein in the course of her rashgsz side-stepping classified information made that point that from what the committee sees, the targeting is very precise. >> do you think that the president should have the sole phenyl authority over this. we're told by public reports that there is actually a kill list and that the president goes through names and the intelligence himself. >> should there be some other check and ballot ability of a president, any president, to make life and death decisions over americans who are connected to terrorist groups or are suspected of being connected to terrorist groups. >> i think that's a tough question. i think it does bare examination. he clearly is responsible and accountab accountable. since lyndon johnson did get involved. since then presidents typically have not gotten into the targeting loop that is choosing specific targets. >> that is a departure from past practice, and i think the idea of looking at a court or some other thing inserted into the decision process has so
that. >> didianne feinstein said if i could o go door to door and pick them all up i would do it. can i say one more. >> chris: i have one more question. forgive me, sir, i'm going to conduct the interview. every day we talk about a shooting. often times mass shooting day-after-day after day and the frustration s you don't think that limiting guns has anything to do with that. i understand there is some things you think do work and we will talk about that. the murder yesterday of former navy seal chris kyle. this was a man who wrote american sniper. the man credited with the largest number of confirmed kills of any american soldier ever. he and another man gunned down at a texas gun range. >> if you want to stop violence in this country here is what you do. first, if you want to protect our kids you put armed security in schools. i'm not talking about arming teachers. i'm talking about police officers and certified professional security people. there is not a parent that sends off their kid to school that wants the kids to be unprotected. just in atlanta this past week armed security st
there now. i think the bill that senator feinstein just recently introduced grandfathers in all the existing assault type of weapons so it will be a while before you see any impact. a majority of homicides that we have at least here in philadelphia and from chiefs around the country that i've spoken to, predominantly handgu, semiautatic handguns, nine millimetre being the one that we recover most often. so there has to be a combination of things. there is no one thing that can be done that's going to have an impact. the bottom line is we need decent laws, reasonable laws in place, maybe inconvenient to some folks that have to, you know, go through background checks even with private sales, but it's something that we have to do to make sure that the guns are not falling into the wrong hands. reporting a gun lost or stolen, to me, another reasonable thing that i believe would definitely help us in law enforcemt. and thereal going aft the people that are out here committing crimes, using a handgun, using assault weapons. it doesn't matter what they use. once they're caught and convicted they ne
simultaneously rational and lucid and crazy, senator feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the reinstitution of a national awb, of course, an assault weapons ban. he talks about ellen degeneres, and then he talks about governor christie. "what can i say, you're the only person i would like to see in the white house in 2016 other than hillary. do one things for your wife, kids, and supporters, start walking at night and eat a little less. not a lot less, just a little." he's currently in touch with current affairs. about the lbgt community, he says, "don't pick on chick-fil-a, free speech is what makes america great." >> but there's this incredible narcissism, there's this self-obsession, that he is now in a position to talk about politics, to talk about celebrities. that, i mean, is obviously deranged in the context in which we see it. and, you read about it, my reaction was, this is a guy who wants attention on himself. and you have to wonder if by covering him so much, we are almost indulging it. >> well, it's a fair point. >> but how can you not cover a story of this mag
the bill? dianne feinstein has been a mayor, she was there at a shooting, she put her finger in a bullet hole. she knows why we need this action. this is an emergency. let's knock off the washington baloney and support the president and get things done. >> what do you want to say to harry reid? >> i want to say to him that i respect him on a whole lot of levels but he's dancing around this issue and people are dying in this country. that is not news to anybody. what the president has done is with all the stuff on his plate, stuck his neck out and said look, we need to solve this. i saw what the president's face looked like when he came out of meeting those victims. i've been there. so have many mayors around this country. and we recognize the fact that this isn't about some sort of game about who wins or loses in washington. these are people's lives. it could be your kid in the school. it could be your brother. john suter, the one survivor from accent printing will be there today. thank god he's alive. >> mayor, you're a member of the coalition of mayors against illegal guns. the group b
of these measures whether it's the one by senator dianne feinstein or others who are not viewed as restrictive what do you is you stall and you hope. the senate is good at doing. is not doing stuff. the hope for senate majority leader reid and other nra backed or progun democrats in the u.s. senate is play for time, have this work itself out. we see the bipartisan offer from joe manchin democrat from pennsylvania and republican from illinois background checks that you hope that some compromise position emerges. you can take ahold of that and get away from the issue. because i am sure that harry reid, ahead of having so many red state democrats up for re-election in 2014, is he not interested in doing a gun ban of any kind. i can't think that he would be because it would be so bad for some of his members and chances for remaining majority member. we are looking at the president departing from air force one arriving in minneapolis. it looks like he has both of the senators from the state with him. as he arrives there to begin the discussion about gun control, let me ask you, since we are talking abou
feinstein's bill. >> how can it impede somebody's trite have a background check on their mental health before they buy a gun? what is it about that that impedes anyone's life? >> what becomes the line. we can have the discussion. most of my generation is on some kind of anti-depressant at some point. is that the line? do you impede those people's constitutional rights because they have taken an anti-depressant? martha: in many cases these young people have people in their lives who felt strongly their child was out of control and they were capable of violence but they had nowhere to turn. if you haven't broken a law you can't institutionalize your child. as a mom you can't imagine saying this. there are mothers out there who believe their child is not safe for society and they have nowhere to turn. i don't hear anyone screaming and yell being this issue. there was somebody around this issue who knew. there were people who said, that's the guy. everybody in town knew that would be the guy. that issue i would love to hear more from the president on this issue. it feels like we are going
example. senator feinstein's subcommittee -- she had a hearing last year. general cartwright and admiral pickering -- or ambassador pickering testified, and they went into this. any action we would take would have to be negotiated, it would have to be bilateral, no unilateral action, and they made that point again on the record in front of senator feinstein's subcommittee. and i support that. i agree with that. >> i have another statement from the report. the united states icbm rapid reaction posture remains in operation and runs a real risk of accidental or mistaken launch. i think that statement is pretty clear. do you agree with that? >> yes. i mean, i the accidental launch and those kinds of things are always to be concerned about, and we need to assure as we have over the years that that does not happen, but on the russian -- >> that we will run a real risk of accident or mistaken launch? >> if you put just "risk," but there's always a risk. when we are talking about nuclear weapons, and the consequences, as you know, you do not get a lot of second chances. we need to be very sure a
think the hardest sell on the hill right now will be senator feinstein's all-out assault weapons ban she's introduced. that's going to be a hard sell to those conservative democrats who are up for re-election in 2014, senators like mark baggage of alaska, max baucus of montana. that's going to be the hardest sell. universal background checks i think is where the consensus is building, although the senate judiciary hearing on tuesday or wednesday, one of the things that happened was that the national rifle association said that is not something that they can get behind. so you know, they're definitely going to be scoring those votes. i think it's going to be a harder sell than maybe folks originally thought when it comes to universal background checks. >> let's take a look at what's happening in massachusetts. lauren, scott scott brown saying he's not going to run for the senate seat opened up by john kerry. wasn't that the best hope republicans had to get that seat? >> a poll came out showing he had a slight lead on the democrat's candidate, ed marquee. i think he really was one of the b
